The official Game of Thrones key art and trailer are finally here… MustGeekTV viewers rejoice!
It’s been a longer wait than winter on the show, but Season 7 is inching closer every day. Can you believe the Season 6 finale aired on June 26, 2016? Well, HBO has begun to whet our appetites by releasing several images, this poster and the first official trailer. If there was any doubt the Night King would feature heavily in these first seven episodes, those can be put to rest. A “motion poster” version released via social media, shows Jon Snow reflected in the leader of the White Walkers eye. That can’t be good, can it?
Never mind “winter,” a massive battle is coming to King’s Landing and it’s safe to say Drogon’s size gives Daenerys Targaryen a slight advantage. Remember, she’s got three dragons… oh boy! Though Cersei Lannister seems optimistic in the trailer’s opening moments, with everyone coming for head, her chances of survival are minimal. It’s so good to see the familiar faces of Grey Worm, Arya, Jon, Tyrion, Dany and all the others. Speaking of optimistic, Daenerys seems convinced she will rule the Seven Kingdoms and she just might, but what about the Night King’s army of the dead? How does Jon Snow fit into the coming conflict? And what about Bran Stark, who sat out an entire season only to return and cause a wee bit of trouble… Okay lots of freakin’ trouble.
There are so many storylines to resolve before we reach the end of the series (sometime next year). Yeah, I’m still annoyed they split Season 7 in half to drag things out. The cast has been promising an intense season, with pacing far quicker then they’ve grown used to over the years. These seven episodes are going to fly by, but we plan to cover them here at the site.
